Join Ian Robinson for an in-depth discussion in this video Pre-rendering for an efficient workflow, part of Artistic Video with Photoshop (2012).
In my typical workflow before I start introducing graphic elements and…other pieces into my edited video here, I end up using a technique called pre-rendering.…I find this tends to make things a little bit more efficient when …I'm working with graphics.…Now pre-rendering is just the process of taking everything that we've done …so far and creating one self-contained, flattened, if you will, QuickTime file.…Basically, what that means is I'll export this and then we'll no longer …be able to go into the Smart Object for these animated stills and edit each individual still.…
This will in turn just make one precise QuickTime.…The advantage of doing this is the fact that Photoshop doesn't necessarily have…to process all of those individual elements as individual pieces anymore.…Now just because I am integrating some graphics into the scene, I am going to…turn off these Adjustment layers and I'll leave these set up so when I bring…my video back in, I can use these as a method of blending my graphics into the background videos.…
